When God is in the process of "weaning" us from "all other dependencies" it can seem quite uncomfortable. It reminds me of "weaning" a child from a pacifier. These are the times when we, like small children, feel most vulnerable and insecure. We tend to struggle with being detached from the comfortable and the familiar.
Specifically, because I am quite relational, it has been quite painful to be "weaned" from certain relationships or environments, not because they were necessarily bad, but because an opportunity for growth was to be gained.
In retrospect, I can see how a God-crafted, risk-laden adventure helped me to shake off a spiritual laziness. Thus, I've had to be "more" dependent upon God and less dependent on others.
I am learning daily that my "security rests in Him alone; not in other people, not in circumstances." In the midst of all this, I deeply desire for God to be "more" glorified in "more" dimensions of my life this year.
